4 people play a game of chance. They each take turns until everyone has taken a turn, then they begin a new round. They stay in the same order every round. Every time a player takes a turn, they have a certain chance of winning. When someone wins, the game ends. They all have even odds of winning a game. The chance of someone winning in any given round is 3/5.
What is the probability for each person to win during their turns?
(In reply to re: Charlie's solution
I had initially misread that as being each turn's chance was the same. By the time I corrected myself, two other, correct, postings had been made.
